ID: CC13776
A simple, single hexagonal prismatic crystal of Beryl, variety Aquamarine, from the Ural Mountains in Russia; no more locality information has been recorded, but it is not unlike Aquamarine found at Mursinsk.  Although termed Aquamarine, the transparent yet slight cloudy crystal hints of pale watery-green punctuated by horizontal fine bands subtle aquamarine-blue.  The crystal terminates with a 6 mm zone of this bluer-shade of aquamarine and a sub-mm cap of pale apple-green. The flat pinacoid termination is shot-through with very fine acicular black inclusions, probably Tourmaline, some of which break through to the surface, leaving pits and grooves a fraction of a millimetre deep. A choice and interestingly coloured Beryl from the Ural Mountains.
